The trailer for “Moonrise Kingdom” — Wes Anderson’s return to live action filmmaking following his acclaimed stop-motion animated family film “Fantastic Mr. Fox” — has dropped its first trailer and it’s a total delight.
When not showcasing its crisp, heavily goldenrod cinematography, it’s pushing its adult ensemble, which is about as good as it gets: Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis and Jason Schwartzman head the all-star cast.
Our favorite thing about this trailer, though? The kids! Anderson has always been terrific at casting young actors (just watch “The Royal Tenenbaums” or “Rushmore”) and these kids seem like they’re going to be a hoot. We can’t wait!
“Moonrise Kingdom,” which Anderson co-wrote with Roman Coppola, will be in theaters on May 25.
